Dr. Donna is an energetic, dynamic speaker - she truly engages her audience with pearls of wisdom, laced with humor, when sharing her philosophy on Making Patients Members of AA…her suggestions on turning patients into "Ardent Admirers" were easy, simple, and cost effective for practices large or small…Bravo!

I enjoyed Dr. Galante’s lecture immensely and it was so practical and relevant to the orthodontic field, but also any field that you work with people in. She totally opens up endless possibilities of internal marketing and how really taking care of the customers you have will make them your customers for life AND generate future customers. The doctor and the staff are really the greatest advertisement a practice has. Thank you again!

I want to thank you for helping me understand and begin to master the world of Invisalign. Also, you have been more than an Invisalign coach to me because my personal and professional life have changed- tremendously, in great ways- by listening and learning from you. And by reading all the books you have recommended. And for all my transformations, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Because of all of this I do tell all my friends that need help (Invisalign and otherwise) about you and your amazing knowledge and heart!
Looking so forward to talking to you again (I'm sure I will run in some sorts of aligner trouble as my cases progress!)
Have a wonderful day!
On behalf of the entire San Diego Region, I wanted to say thank you for making time to educate both our Orthodontists as well as our Treatment Coordinators this past Thursday and Friday.
From conversations had with all in attendance the last two days, I can assure you both meetings were a great success, being very beneficial and informative for all.
I believe your "Diamonds" were potent and will be utilized often as all head back to their respective offices on Monday. What both groups lacked in size, their participation more than made up for. Their being involved and inquisitive was proof positive that you hit the mark as far as what they needed to hear. Thank you as well for covering so many different aspects of a what a successful Invisalign practice looks like. From your marketing approach, to your practice growth model, to your diamonds, to your iTero input, to of course your clinical expertise, every aspect shared was welcome material to those in attendance.
All in all, an excellent meeting for everyone.
Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you in San Diego again soon!
I've been working with Dr. Galante for close to a year now on my Invisalign cases. She has given me more confidence to handle Invisalign cases with patients who I thought were out of my league in terms of orthodontic treatment. I feel confident about the level of treatment I can offer my patients and I feel well supported by Donna when facing difficulties or unforeseen complications. She has been accessible and timely with her treatments and correspondence/support even with her business commitments. I appreciate her and her help a lot.

The clinical "pearls" she shared has changed the way...
"I recently had the pleasure of attending Dr. Donna Galante's presentation, "How You Can Significantly Grow Your Practice by Becoming the Invisalign Orthodontist In Your Community." I found her presentation to be concise and she discussed many aspects of Invisalign treatment from a clinician's perspective. From getting the patients into her office, to generating excitement for Invisalign treatment, to patient management. Her story of how Invisalign has changed her practice and the clinical "pearls" she shared has changed the way I present Invisalign as a treatment option as well as how I approach treatment planning and patient management."
- Dr. Thomas Sonneveld, Orland Park, IL
Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and knowledge
"Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and knowledge of Invisalign during your recent trip to Kansas City. I really enjoyed the evening meal and the seminar on Friday. The book I won, "It’s All about Millimeters," was great! We have already incorporated some of the ideas into our practice."
- Dr. Jo Hansen, Lee’s Summit, MO
I knew the staff would learn a lot of valuable information
"I had heard you before on one of the Invisalign CE on-line courses, and really enjoyed all the aspects of your seminar in person. I knew the staff would learn a lot of valuable information from you. On behalf of the staff and from me, thank you very much!"
- Dr. John Heister, Seymour, IN
How you differed was in how you were able to motivate
"There have been several points in my short career (12 years) when I have thought about going "all-in" into Invisalign but for one reason or another it's always found a way to take a back seat. Your presentation and approach to practice is not something that's completely new to me. I almost always attend all Invisalign events locally and I have heard similar things from other practitioners across the nation. How you differed was in how you were able to motivate and give hope from your own example. It wasn't just the case presentations or just the marketing. In the short 3 hours, I was made to believe that this way is possible and profitable for ME!"
- Dr. Mamnoon Siddiqui, Detroit, MI
Wow, her case presentation was amazing...
"I had the pleasure to listen to Dr. Galante lecture today. Her clinical knowledge will make any skeptic believe you can do anything with Invisalign. I am not an orthodontist. I am a practice manager for an orthodontist, who is also the TC. I learned so much today and I am "all in" when it comes to patients requesting Invisalign. Wow, her case presentation was amazing class II, class III, open bite and even mixed dentition. Very impressive! Going to suggest my doctor to do her clincheck coaching. Thanks Dr. Galante for an amazing training day.."
- Robin Rangel McElligott, Chicago, IL
Your expertise was well received and much appreciated
"I just want to personally thank you for coming to Wisconsin. My orthos who attended both Thursday evening and Friday were very impressed. I know that they will look at a clincheck with a more positive attitude and start "recommending" Invisalign to more Teens and adults. Your expertise was well received and much appreciated."
- Debbie Garven
- Ann Marie Gorczyca
I am so grateful for all you have taught me!
"I went to the Invisalign meeting in Truckee yesterday and enjoyed it- but I have to tell you, that it confirmed how much I have learned from you and what an excellent orthodontist you are! I am so grateful for all you have taught me!"
- Dr. Melissa Jones
We made Premier for Invisalign!
"Just wanted to let you know we made Premier for Invisalign! Thanks for your assistance with helping me achieve that goal.
I will be looking forward to the start of the Galante Group and the new CD series."
- Dr. Ricarda Prentice
My husband and I together listened to the CD's [Owning and Operating a Successful Dental Practice Today] and filled out the workbook that is included with the entire package. We had been setting goals inconsistently and not really looking too far ahead into what we really wanted to do with our practice and our lives.
The CD's and the workbook force you to sit back and take the time to set bigger and better goals and look into the future and determine what success will mean to you and your family. We recommend this program to anyone who is looking to improve not only the success of their practice, but their overall happiness in their professional and personal lives.
- Dr. Melissa Jones
My Practice Is Running More Smoothly, I Am More Profitable, And I’m Having More Fun At Work!
"I have been working with Dr. Galante for several months now. She has helped me learn how to set goals both personally and professionally. Because of this my practice is running more smoothly, I am more profitable and I am having more fun at work and on my free time. She has been through all of the same challenges I am facing, which makes her insight and advice better than any other practice consultant I have worked with in the past. This has been a great decision for me and my practice!"
- Dr. Ricarda Prentice
Your message will be the catalyst...
"You provided some very valuable information and motivation to many of my Doctors and their teams in attendance. Your message will be the catalyst that will move at least two Doctors that were in attendance to the next advantage level and beyond. I believe that you had quite the impact on the orthodontic residents as well."
- Matthew Kelly
Bursting with hands on ideas...
"I have to tell you I love your CD's (57 Strategies for More Patients Now). You have always had that special art for teaching and sharing. They are so enjoyable and bursting with hands on ideas."
- Dr. Beverly Carr
You have completely exceeded any and all expectations I had of this mentorship program.
"I have already recommended your one-on-one coaching to several female colleague friends, and I would highly recommend your coaching service to anyone opening their first practice. You have been extremely generous with your time and resources, and have completely exceeded any and all expectations I had of this mentorship program. I feel that you are genuinely interested in helping me succeed, and I appreciate the incredible amount of valuable information you have shared including specific marketing tips, fully usable forms, hiring and interviewing tips, start-up advice, books, and so much more. Our phone meetings always begin promptly and are never cut short. You thoroughly and thoughtfully help me find solutions to various challenges, and I always hang up the phone feeling charged from your contageous energy. Your mentorship program is a real gift, in my opinion, and the value far exceeds the cost. Thank you for all you are and all you do - you really are extraordinatry and just the kind of inspiration young orthodontists (and everyone) need right now!"
- Dr. Melissa Jones
Thanks for moving my thinking a little more forward.
"I attended your Study Club lecture today and was very impressed.
I took lots of notes and will implement many of your suggestions.
Thanks for moving my thinking a little more forward."
- John N. Archer, DDS, MS
You inspire people!
"Your presentation challenged my doctors and clearly showed them how a practice performs at the next level. I think that you really made an impact on every person attending. Most of all, what impacted me that you initiated this on your own, back in 2008. What you've accomplished in the past 4 years is simply remarkable and you inspire people!"
- Deanne White
I have never seen so many doctors that engaged!
"Thank you so much for last night! You were amazing and so motivating to my doctors- like I said I have never seen so many doctors that engaged, taking notes, and asking questions like last night. Not one doctor left early!"
- Kerry Farrell, Territory Manager
I got some great insight from you...
"It was a great pleasure to attend your course on Friday. I really must say that I got some great insight from you and ideas for future directions that I intend to pursue. Thanks so much for your time and expertise."
- Dr. Frank Celenza, New York, NY
I have become a better leader for my staff.
"Because of Dr. Donna Galante's coaching, I have become a better leader for my staff. I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for facilitating this coaching and mastermind group. I really learned so much in all aspects of dentistry and life. Great job!"
- Dr. Nancy Welch, Sacramento, CA
I highly recommend Donna's programs to help improve the quality of your life.
"The quality of the coaching/mastermind experience was exceptional. I have so much information and tools to work with for any situation be it professional or personal. It was a well-rounded experience. I highly recommend Donna's programs to help improve the quality of your life."
- Dr. Eloisa Espiritu, Lincoln, CA
You are in the trenches dealing with problems and your solutions are reasonable and easy to implement.
"The small group format was great, comfortable. We got to know each other being in such a small group. It was more personal and we could share experiences. "I like the fact that you (Donna) have tried the things you are suggesting and have first hand experience. I love the fact that you are in the trenches dealing with problems and your solutions are reasonable and easy to implement."
- Dr. Sydney Moore, Roseville, CA
It is the most valuable coaching I've ever participated in...
"Donna, thank you for your outstanding coaching in the Mastermind group! It is the most valuable coaching I've ever participated in and I would recommend it highly for any business owner to attend."
- Dr. Shahnaz L. Formoli, Sacramento, CA
- Dr. Ralph Callender Sr., Padadena, CA
I recently used Dr. Galante's Hiring Manual to help me hire an exceptional employee for my business manager.
"I have been a member of Dr. Donna’s Peak Professional Mastermind for over 6 months and recently used her Hiring Manual to help me hire an exceptional employee for my business manager. Before using her manual, I had hired people without a system or process in place and ultimately hired people who where causing my practice to lose patients and income.
"Through Dr. Donna’s Peak Professional Mastermind Group and her Hiring Manual, I now have a system to follow when I need to hire new and exceptional employees. She provides a step by step process that is easy to follow and has all the forms, questions you need to ask during the interview, how to read a resume, how to make an job offer, how to advertise for top quality applicants and much more. I highly recommend this manual if you want to make hiring easy, systematic and a success for you and your practice."
- Dr. Shahnaz L. Formoli, Sacramento, CA
- Roslyn Cisneros, Territory Manager
You are getting The Real Deal with Dr. Galante.
"Not only does she have the most creative and innovative ideas in the orthodontic marketplace, but she puts them to practice and has tested all of the principles she espouses as the marketing expert, doctor & , oh yeah, business owner of Cater & Galante Orthodontics. She is a breath of fresh air in bringing orthodontic practices into the 21st Century. Gone are the days of the traditional orthodontic practice and Dr. Galante is far ahead of the curve."
- Keith McLachlan, Regional Manager
